Bib # 169

So, as the ticker to the right creeps down into the single digits today...we officially get our BIB numbers for IM Florida. This is a big day for many reasons...

1. it's finally beginning to sink in that I am going to do an ironman

2. This is the bib number that I will eventually put on my wall in my apartment, maybe along with the swim cap and wristband

3. This is the race # that I have been waiting for to tell everyone about so they can keep track of me on 11/4/06 from points all over the world.

Kinda cool huh? So there it is. Number 169. Wow. Cool :)

I leave in less than a week and the taper and rest are finally beginning to kick in. Stay tuned to see what happens next Saturday :) I won't dissappoint.

Here's your verse of the day for number 169:

Genesis 6:9 (New International Version)

This is the account of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God.

Hi Travis,
you don't know me, I'm a local rochester age grouper. I just wanted to say good luck this weekend.

Congratulations!

I see that you hit your top 4 goals, and maybe top 5 depending upon what the other young studs did. Outstanding!

Jeremy said...

Congrats Travis! You are an IRONMAN!
